Proposal for a Wellness Clinician/Research Specialization for the Existing Degree Program, Master of Education in Physical Education.
Cardinal, Bradley J.; And Others
Consistent with the Year 2000 National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, this paper presents a proposal for a Wellness Clinician/Research specialization within the existing Master of Education in Physical Education degree program offered by the Division of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation at Wayne State University (Michigan). The specialty accommodates national, state, local, professional, and student concerns, interests, and needs for training in personal health promotion through improvements in lifestyle management, particularly in the area of physical activity. The overall goal of the proposed specialization is to provide appropriate academic preparation for graduate students specializing in wellness. This proposal includes a rationale for and a description of the program, along with program objectives, standards, administration, resources, and costs. The acceptance of this new area of concentration by the New Program and Program Review Committee will make it possible for the university optimally to prepare students for the nationally recognized and increasingly important area of health promotion and wellness. An appendix provides a curriculum including total program requirements. (LL)
